Monday January 21 2019
The cold air has arrive on schedule and the strong winds are still with us making it feel well below zero. For many this Martin Luther King Jr Day is helpful to keep kids from waiting at the bus stop and less traffic on the roads so the rush doesn’t have to be a rush this morning. Temperatures will not get out of the teens for many and winds could gust to 40 mph, so a Wind Chill Advisory remains in place until 11 AM. But it will stay cold all day. Please consider your pets and don’t leave them outside any longer than you would want to be out there.
Baltimore at 6 AM
- Temperature = 12ºF
- Wind Gusts: 38 mph
- Wind Chill = -6ºF
The reason for the wind is the pressure gradient between the departing storm and arctic High Pressure moving in from Canada. This will be a short visit, but long enough. Below are two timeline sliders for temperatures and wind chills.

I have some great photos from local photographers I am sorting through. I will post a collection in my next report this morning.

Skipping To Wednesday
The next event should warm us up, but I will pay attention to the timing. If this arrives earlier, the frozen ground could cause some icy problems at the start. For now the modeling has the wintry mix in PA and brings us rain early afternoon.

This storm repeats the pattern of warming us to rain, followed by colder air Thursday.

This next system may be the one to watch as colder air will be in place and a coastal storm tried to form. Following the modeling bias this winter, then may end up farther north, which would be closer to us. This is not the final solution and I expect the change to be worth watching.
